Many people think Christina Aguilera and immediately hear “Genie In A Bottle”, or better yet her classic bad girl song, “Dirrty”. Personally I was never a fan of “Genie In A Bottle”. It wasn’t until the Stripped album that I became a fan. HUGE FAN. That voice. Amazing. Then when “Back To Basics” came out, SOLD. Her voice mixed with old school horns, disco blends, and modern urban elements was music to my ears. It was like two of my favorite music eras came together.

Inspired by her 1920s–1940s idols, including Billie Holiday, Otis Redding, Etta James, and Ella Fitzgerald, Aguilera sought to bring old-school jazz, blues and soul inspirations with a modernized style into Back to Basics. I love this album, and I love this song. Enjoy a little throwback to an “old school groove” with “Back In The Day”.
